#ifihadglass I would take control of the world around me. It’s a natural extension of my existing home automation project for Android. My app already integrates with your voice, but what if you didn’t have to take out your phone? What if it could also integrate with your eyes?
#ifihadglass I’d control my smart home so I can talk back to my devices, build a prototype to help solve the problem of food deserts and get the teams I work with to understand the UX so when they are released, we can build apps for clients
#ifihadglass I would develop the Glass to interact with a home power control app that I developed last summer. Imagine looking at a light or TV in your home and saying “OK Glass, turn that on.” As time goes on, I would add functionality with essentially any internet-controlled device in the home, office, or anywhere in the world. Slides in presentations would be able to be turned by voice-controlled cues and I could simply look at my coffee machine so I can wake up in the morning. Only #ifihadglass
#IfIHadGlass I’d build an app to help people find their keys. Their cars in airport parking lots. Their way back home or back to their hotel. Find their kids
Tulane School of Medicine student: pill/meds imaging app so providers can identify meds brought in by patient during exam
telemedicine: physician remotely guides Glass-equipped nurse through exam for assisted-home living patients etc.
test Glass navigation on new NOLA cycling lanes/paths
water sports — “a healthy disregard for the impossible” :)
#ifihadglass I’d build an app for home automation via voice commands, focusing on IP based home automation, with a unified interface for control of smart appliances, lighting, security, etc. Pluggable backend for device interface. Investigate OpenCV for feature classification: look at a window and say “ok glass, close blinds”.
#ifihadglass I would create augmented home automation apps. No switches, no visible interfaces with hardware in the home. Alerts from cameras around the property. Reminders from your laundry, stove, fridge. Place light switches anywhere. Control from a map of the home.
#ifihadglass I would integrate my home with my glasses. “OK Glass, turn on the lights.” “OK Glass, turn the temperature down.” I would forge an app that would control popular home automation systems like Control4 and SmartHome. It would cut the need for users to unlock their phones and use clunky remotes to control their homes
The handicapped aid application. This application analysis real-time vision data from glasses and translate to voice message to the blind, his family can keep watch on him and guide him home safely. It can also translate voice into test displaying on glasses to help the deaf be able to hear.
#ifihadglass I’d control my home automation system by sight. When I walk away from my house, I’d look at it and say “ok glass, arm”. While in the house i could integrate it with the A/V, HVAC, lighting, or other based on whatever i was looking at.
I am planning to install an alarm system – was going to go with Ademco or DSC, but then my cousin who is in the alarm business said if I’m thinking of home automation, I should go with the ELK M1. I didn’t really plan on any home automation and this unit would be significantly more than than the basic unit I was planning ($450 vs. $200) before adding any sensors. Is home automation worth it ?
